 Latest Eagles Player Notes
Sep 21 2017 - Chance Warmack
  G Chance Warmack, who was a game-day inactive the first two weeks, likely will make his first Eagles start Sunday at left guard against the Giants. He was taking the first-team snaps at practice Wednesday in place of Isaac Seumalo, who started the first two games.


Sep 21 2017 - Isaac Seumalo
  LG Isaac Seumalo, who gave up four of the Eagles' six sacks in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, appears to have lost his starting job. Chance Warmack was taking the first-team snaps at practice.


Sep 21 2017 - Rasul Douglas
  CB Rasul Douglas, who was the Eagles' third-round pick in the April draft, could make his first NFL start Sunday against the Giants. He'd replace Jaylen Watkins (hamstring). Douglas played a lot Sunday after Watkins went down, and the rookie held up well. He played a lot of off-coverage and probably will do the same this week against Odell Beckham Jr. and the Giants' talented receivers.


Sep 21 2017 - Jaylen Watkins
  CB Jaylen Watkins didn't practice Wednesday. He injured his hamstring early in Sunday's loss to Kansas City and didn't return. He isn't expected to play this week.


Sep 21 2017 - Corey Graham
  S Corey Graham, who replaced Rodney McLeod last week after McLeod went down with a hamstring injury, is expected to make his first start as an Eagle Sunday against the Giants. Graham is a 12-year veteran who has started in the league at both corner and safety.


Sep 21 2017 - Rodney McLeod
  S Rodney McLeod, who injured his hamstring in Sunday's loss to Kansas City, didn't practice Wednesday and is not expected to play this week against the Giants.


Sep 21 2017 - Zach Ertz
  TE Zach Ertz is off to an impressive start. He has a team-high 13 catches in the first two games. Eleven have been for first downs. He's tied for the league lead in receiving first downs with Pittsburgh WR Antonio Brown.


Sep 19 2017 - Chris Long
  DE Chris Long of the Philadelphia Eagles will donate his first six game checks this season to fund two scholarships for students in his hometown of Charlottesville, Va., his foundation announced on Tuesday. The scholarships will provide two students with a seven-year, all-expenses-paid school program, and are meant to "promote equality through education," per the Chris Long Foundation. They will be administered by Long's alma mater, St. Anne's-Belfield School, which will collaborate with the Boys & Girls Club of Central Virginia to identify two sixth graders who will have their tuition covered through high school. Long and his wife, Megan, are making this decision in light of a series of white supremacist rallies that led to violence in the streets last month.


Sep 18 2017 - LeGarrette Blount
  RB LeGarrette Blount, who had a team-high 14 carries last week against the Redskins, didn't have any Sunday against the Chiefs. But head coach Doug Pederson said it's no indication of how the team will use him going forward.


Sep 18 2017 - Jake Elliott
  K Jake Elliott could be in jeopardy of losing his job after missing a 30-yard field-goal attempt against the Chiefs on Sunday. Elliott, a rookie, was signed last week to replace injured Caleb Sturgis, who was placed on injured reserve with a hip injury.


Sep 18 2017 - Isaac Seumalo
  LG Isaac Seumalo had a rough game against the Chiefs. He was responsible for at least three of their six sacks and also had a costly false start penalty in the red zone. Head coach Doug Pederson said Monday the Eagles weren't considering benching Seumalo.


Sep 18 2017 - Jaylen Watkins
  CB Jaylen Watkins injured a hamstring early in the game Sunday. No word on the severity or whether there is any chance he will play this week. Watkins started in place of Ronald Darby, who is out for at least four weeks and probably longer because a dislocated ankle.


Sep 18 2017 - Rodney McLeod
  S Rodney McLeod sustained a hamstring injury in the first half and didn't return. The Eagles had no update on his condition Monday, listing him as day to day. It's unlikely he'll play this weeks.


Sep 18 2017 - Zach Ertz
  TE Zac Ertz topped 3,000 receiving yards in his 63rd career game. That ties Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez as the ninth-fastest tight end to reach that milestone. He finished the game with five catches for 97 yards. "I thought we had a great game plan going in," Ertz said. "They kind of took some things out of it early. The guys made plays when they had their opportunities."


Sep 18 2017 - Jaylen Watkins
  S Jaylen Waktins and S Rodney McLeod exited the Sunday game with hamstring injuries.


Sep 18 2017 - Rodney McLeod

Pumphrey, who was a fourth-round pick, was inactive in the team's season-opening victory over the Washington Redskins after returning from a head injury during the preseason. The 5-foot-9, 176-pound Pumphrey set the FBS rushing record at San Diego State with 6,405 career yards. He had 2,133 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns last season.

Sep 14 2017 - Jason Peters
  LT Jason Peters practiced fully Thursday for the second straight day. He tweaked his groin against the Redskins, playing just 31 snaps. He is expected to play Sunday. Whether he is able to finish remains to be seen.


Sep 14 2017 - Brandon Graham
  DE Brandon Graham was a full practice participant Thursday. He was listed on the injury report with a triceps injury. Graham had two sacks and four hurries in the Eagles' Week 1 win over the Redskins.

Sep 14 2017 - Halapoulivaati Vaitai
  T Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who replaced Jason Peters at left tackle after he injured his groin late in the second quarter, played eight snaps in the first half as the second tight end in some "12" personnel packages. Head coach Doug Pederson said they will continue to give him snaps in that role, though their primary "12" personnel package still will include Zach Ertz and either Trey Burton or Brent Celek as the two tight ends.


Sep 14 2017 - Jason Peters
  LT Jason Peters, who played just 31 snaps against Washington because of a groin injury, practiced Wednesday. Head coach Doug Pederson said he's good to go for Sunday against the Chiefs.

  K Caleb Sturgis was placed on injured reserve after injuring his hip on the opening kickoff last week. An MRI showed that the injury is going to take a few weeks to heal. He can be activated in November.


Sep 14 2017 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz finished 28th in the league in third-down passing last season as a rookie. The only two quarterbacks in the league with worse third-down passer ratings were Blake Bortles and Ryan Fitzpatrick. He got off to a great start Sunday, completing 9 of 11 third-down passes for 148 yards and two touchdowns. He converted four third downs of eight yards or more after converting 19 all of last season.


Sep 14 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby, who dislocated his right ankle in Sunday's win over Washington, vowed Wednesday to be back within four to six weeks. "They were worried about me, but everyone's happy that it wasn't that serious, and I'm going to be back," Darby said.


Sep 12 2017 - Caleb Sturgis
  K Caleb Sturgis will be placed on injured reserve/designation to return after the kicker sustained a hip flexor injury in Philadelphia's season-opening 30-17 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. Sturgis was injured early in Sunday's win but was able to stay in the game. After the contest, coach Doug Pederson said it was why the Eagles went for a two-point conversion following their last touchdown. Sturgis converted field goals of 50, 42 and 37 yards in Sunday's game.


Sep 12 2017 - Jake Elliott
  K Jake Elliott will be signed by the Philadelphia Eagles off the Cincinnati Bengals' practice squad to replace fellow kicker Caleb Sturgis, according to the NFL Network.

Sep 11 2017 - Alshon Jeffery
  WR Alshon Jeffery had a quiet debut with the Eagles. He was targeted seven times by QB Carson Wentz, but had just three catches for 38 yards.


Sep 11 2017 - Caleb Sturgis
  K Caleb Sturgis suffered a hip flexor on the opening kickoff of the game Sunday. He played with it, kicking three field goals, including a 50-yarder. But by the end of the game, it clearly was bothering him. The Eagles likely will bring in some kickers for workouts this week in the event Sturgis can't go against Kansas City on Sunday.


Sep 11 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby dislocated his right ankle in Sunday's win over the Redskins. He had an MRI Monday that showed just minor ligament damage. The Eagles expect him to be sidelined four to six weeks.


Sep 11 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby dislocated his right ankle in Sunday's season opener but reportedly will not require surgery. A team source confirmed the news to ESPN's Chris Mortensen after an MRI on Monday. Surgery would have cost Darby the rest of the season. Darby, 23, avoided major ligament damage but will miss four to six weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Coach Doug Pederson said during his press conference Monday that he is still gathering information. Darby was carted off the field with an air cast on his lower leg in the second quarter of the Eagles' 30-17 win against the Washington Redskins. Darby, who was acquired from the Buffalo Bills in the offseason, was covering tight end Jordan Reed and running across the field when he went down awkwardly near the Philadelphia sideline.


Sep 11 2017 - Caleb Sturgis

Sturgis was injured early in Sunday's 30-17 win over the Washington Redskins but was able to stay in the game. After the game, coach Doug Pederson said it was why the Eagles went for a two-point conversion following their last touchdown. After Philadelphia's last touchdown, Sturgis appeared gimpy walking off the field following the kickoff. Pederson confirmed the Eagles will bring in some kickers for tryouts this week and sign one before Sunday's game at Kansas City. Sturgis converted field goals of 50, 42 and 37 yards in Sunday's game.

Sep 6 2017 - Timmy Jernigan
  DT Tim Jernigan, who the Eagles acquired in a trade with Baltimore in the offseason, is expected to get a lot of one-on-one matchups because of the presence of All-Pro Fletcher Cox next to him. The Eagles are hopeful he'll be able to win his share of those one-on-ones.


Sep 6 2017 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz threw just eight touchdown passes to wide receivers last season. He had just 16 TD passes in 607 attempts and finished 30th in the league in touchdown percentage.


Sep 6 2017 - Alshon Jeffery
  WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to be guarded by the Redskins' top corner, Josh Norman, much of the day Sunday. The two met last season when Jeffery was with Chicago. He was targeted 10 times and had five catches for 92 yards and no touchdowns.


Sep 6 2017 - Lane Johnson
  RT Lane Johnson missed both of the Eagles' losses to the Redskins last season during his 10-game PED suspension. Without Johnson, the Eagles gave up nine sacks in the two games. He will be the starting right tackle Sunday when the Eagles play the Redskins at FedEx Field.


Sep 6 2017 - Sidney Jones
  CB Sidney Jones, the Eagles' second-round pick who is recovering from a ruptured Achilles suffered at his Pro Day workout, will spend at least the first half of the season on the team's non-football injury list. The Eagles still are optimistic that he'll be able to play this season.


Sep 6 2017 - Jake Elliott
  K Jake Elliott, a fifth-round draft choice out of the University of Memphis who lost out to veteran Randy Bullock in a preseason-long kicking competition, was signed to the Bengals practice squad on Sunday.


Sep 5 2017 - Rick Lovato
